Inspiring Your Authentic Week

Total Potential

Posted: 17 Dec 2007 02:51 AM CST

How many of us achieve our total potential in life?

How many of us even know what our total potential is?

Out total potential lies across five main areas:

1 – In love and relationships

2 – In work, wealth and contribution to society 

3 – In wellness and fitness

4 – In the comfort and inspiration of our lifestyle

5 – In our continual spiritual development

There is no absolute level of potential for any of these things and it is not about making comparisons with others.  At some level we know what we are capable of, we know when we can stop searching and feel comfortable, we know when we feel at peace.

How would you score your self out of 10, in each of these areas, where 0 is ‘pain’ and 10 is ‘peace’.

In love and relationships we are looking for relationships with parents, children and especially our life partner that are loving, aligned, honest and mutually supportive.  The single most empowering thing that we can experience in life is the unconditional support of another.  This is our gift to give and our blessing to receive.

How are your relationships with you partner, your parents and your children?

Work, wealth and contribution is about what you do with your time, the contribution that you make to society and the rewards you receive by return.

Do you love your work?  Do you love the impact that the outcome of your work has on others?  Is your work fulfilling both in terms of income and meaning for you?

Our wellness and fitness are about going beyond basic good health to making the most of your physical body through excellence in nutrition and hydration and a suitable exercise routine.   Plus the healing of any dis-ease to the extent that it is possible.

Are you as fit and healthy as you would like to be?  Are you as fit and healthy as you could be?

Our lifestyle and location needs to inspire us and to be sufficient to put an end to striving.  We need to live somewhere that offers security, comfort and inspiration.  We need our lifestyle to have the space for learning, resting, relationships and fun.

Are you happy with where and how you live?  Do you strive for more or different or are you at peace?

Our spiritual potential is unlimited and is a lifelong journey of exploration. 

Do you know YOUR spirituality or have you accepted someone else’s?  Do you understand why you are here and how it all fits together?

Reaching our total potential is not about striving or struggling it is about centering our lives around our authentic selves and simply being all that we can be.

Achieving our total potential is about creating alignment in our relationships so that they can support us in our quest and we can support them, it is about loving our lives and our work and contributing to society with our time and energy, it is about honouring our body and maximising our energy.

In 2008 commit to achieving your total potential.

If you want some support for your journey why not come on the Total Potential Retreat in Mallorca or have some one to one coaching.

If you want to help others to reach their total potential through coaching or other inspiration take a look at the Authentic Transformation Advance in Mallorca in March and California in April.

If you want your business to achieve it’s total potential how about total potential training for your staff?

Looking forward to helping you make 2008 the best year ever in every way.

with love

Most of us seem to be coerced into conformity from a very early age by the dragon of normality. I call it a dragon not because it breathes fire or even because it is particularly nasty but because it is entirely fictitious.

There is no normal.

There is no right, which is more right than your right.
